A Scrappy Trips Finish

I am so very  happy with this quilt! This is my second Scrappy Trips - I'm calling it Scrappy Trips 2.0.

Scrappy Trips 2.0

Lots and lots of dots and brights. This one is an 8 X 8 square block, so 64 squares per block. And the squares are bigger - they finished 2 1/2". The quilt is 84" square and I can't wait to sleep under it.

Lots of dots and brights!

Here's a close-up of the quilting. My friend, Terry Finnerty quilted this one. I talked her into purchasing variegated thread and she liked how it came out as much as I do. The pattern looks like a spring - and thought the curved lines were a nice complement to the all those squares.

Now I know I haven't shown the first Scrappy Trips I did, but I don't have it back from Cass yet. She's been very very busy. Stay tuned. I hope to get it next week
Okay I have a little sewing time today and then some important business to take care of.

Happy stitching-
carol fun
